The True Return Of The King

The Bible tells us that many false Christs will appear and deceive many people. There are numerous cults out there where the leader claims to be the second coming of Jesus and a new messiah. These usually end up being personality cults where the person that claims to be Jesus is worshiped as a god. Jesus Himself specifically warns us about this:

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:23-25

When the Catholic priests hold up the wafer at the mass in front of the altar that they claim to be the body, soul, and divinity and actual DNA flesh of Jesus Himself in front of the congregation they say “Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world”. They actually have worship of the bread wafers used in their communion because they claim it is God (adoration). Jesus’ exact words warned about this when He says if any man says “here is Christ” believe him not. The Catholic priest claims to have power to summon Jesus off of His throne and re-offer Him on the altar as a sacrifice for sin. The Bible tells us where Jesus currently is and that His offering of Himself was done one time and would only need to be done one time:

“10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.14 For by one offering he hath perfected  for ever them that are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:10-14

Many people are afraid that they may be deceived by a false Christ or miss the real Jesus’ return due to being too cautious. This shows that their heart is in the right place because they want the real Jesus and not an imposter which many are in the world and have been since Jesus ascended into Heaven. The good news is that The Bible tells us how Jesus will be coming back so we will be able to recognize Him:

“7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:7-8

The Bible even gives comfort to those who are looking for the real Jesus second coming:

“7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;” 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9

The Bible clearly states in several spots that the return of Jesus is not going to be some guy popping up somewhere claiming to be Jesus and showing some deceiving signs and wonders. So this rules everyone out who claims to be Jesus. The Bible even tells us His appearance:

“13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.” Revelation 1:13-15

Jesus is not coming back looking like a regular human being like He came the first time. And when He returns He is not starting some small group of “chosen people” in a remote village or compound somewhere. The whole world will witness His return at once. It will be a cataclysmic event with a lot of destruction of every false religion and wicked person. The only thing at that point in time that will matter is are you ready to meet Him?
